Crush and Release (Ode to fear)
In this second iteration of the series, Crush and Release, Jimenez performed squeezing a pomegranate until the fruit burst while reciting a quote from Marianne Williamson. Jimenez was inspired by the subtext of the poem Howl. In the poem debauchery, loss, wild artistic escapades and the city are described. Jimenez was interested in the soft-underbelly of these outward actions, such as the intense desire to connect, intimacy, identification and vulnerability. In Ancient Egypt, Greece and Isreal, the pomegranate has been a symbol of ambition, fruit of the dead, and fertility, respectively. Jimenez was interested in creating a charged pause where she would energetically connect and unite a diverse body of viewers through enacting and embodying tension and relief, while speaking words that have been used as spiritual guidance in contemporary western culture.
